It is the responsibility of the parent to ensure safe transportation to and from the student's scheduled lesson. The Music Gallery Academy is not liable for injury, theft, or damage to personal property that may occur on our premises.
It is the student's responsibility to have an adequate instrument to practice on. The teacher is an available resource to advise the student and can make help make decisions about what type of instrument is needed and what kind of repair work may need to be done.
If a student wants to grow a musician, it is their responsibility to practice daily. We recommend a minimum of 30 minutes each day. The more a student practices and the more dedicated a student is to their lessons, the better the progress they will see. Growth does not come from your teacher. It comes from practice, dedication, and willingness to learn.
